32 MB RAM Module for PB190 - Mac Portable

Anybody have any idea where I can find a 32MB RAM Module for a PowerBook 190 ? According to the specs, a 32MB RAM module for the PowerBook 5300 would work in this machine, as the PB 190 series uses PB 5300 RAM Modules. Is 32MB the highest expansion module I can install, or have others installed higher capacity modules in this 68040 PowerBook 190? best regards, Perry...

    Default 32 MB RAM Module for PB190

    Anybody have any idea where I can find a 32MB RAM Module for a PowerBook
    190 ? According to the specs, a 32MB RAM module for the PowerBook 5300
    would work in this machine, as the PB 190 series uses PB 5300 RAM Modules.

    Is 32MB the highest expansion module I can install, or have others
    installed higher capacity modules in this 68040 PowerBook 190?

    New, you can get a 32 MB module for a PB 190 at Data Memory Systems for
    $85. Web site is [url]www.datamem.com[/url]. A 32 MB module from a PB 5300 might
    work, or it might not. That depends on who made it and whether they
    followed Apple's specifications for making a module that would work in
    both. Many did not. There is information on the Apple Developers site
    that outlines the differences between the 5300 and 190 memory expansion
    slot and controller. Specifically, this information is contained in an
    "Error Note" that corrects some information in the developer guides for
    the 190 and the 5300.

    And yes, 32 MB is the largest you can put in the PB 190. Depending on
    whether your 190 came with 4 MB or 8 MB of RAM on the logic board, that
    will give a maximum of 36 or 40 MB. The 190 controller will not see
    more than 32 MB installed in the RAM expansion slot.
